Happy March, Everyone!
We hope you made it through midterms and are excited to kick back and relax for spring break! Don’t forget to pay your rent on March 1 before you leave for break! Also, remember to close and lock windows, throw out perishable items in your fridge, and dispose of your trash in the appropriate trash area. We will have normal office hours during spring break. The renewal deadline may have passed, but you may still be able to renew your lease in your same apartment. See the leasing office for more details as soon as possible before your unit goes on the market! Have a safe and fun spring break, and please let us know if there is anything we can do for you!

-You can put in work orders online 24/7 at www.liveathannah.com. Please remember to call the office for a maintenance emergency.
-Please remember to keep our community clean and properly dispose of your trash in the designated trash receptacles. You will be fined $50 if you place your trash outside of the trash dumpsters. Also, don’t forget to visit our pet stations to properly dispose of pet waste. We have installed turf in the courtyard by the hot tub, so be sure to not take your pet out for the bathroom there. Friendly reminder: Only park in your assigned area or else you may be fined or even towed!
Reminders & Updates
Don’t forget: Rent is due on the 1st of the month! Late fees begin to apply the morning of the 5th if rent has not been paid. If you are not here to pay, you can always make a payment online at liveathannah.com.
Just a reminder that the leasing office is open Monday through Thursday from 9:00 a.m.–7:00 p.m., Friday from 10:00 a.m.–6:00 p.m., and from noon–4:00 p.m. on the weekends. The campus shuttle runs throughout the semester from 7:00 a.m.–7:00 p.m. Monday through Thursday, and 7:00 a.m.–5:00 p.m. on Friday. The shuttle also runs Thursday, Friday, and Saturday nights from 10:00 p.m.–2:00 a.m. up to Grand River. It leaves at the five-minute mark of each half-hour (e.g., 7:05, 7:35, etc.).
Our shuttle will run the late-night route prior to spring break as normal. It will not operate March 6-12. Normal schedule will resume March 13.
If you have an emergency maintenance request or have been locked out of your apartment after office hours, please call the after-hours number at (517) 333-7730.
Soft Skills Make a Difference
A positive attitude and the ability to look someone in the eye while giving a firm handshake can truly set two very similar candidates apart in the job process. In this day and age of hiring and recruiting, we’ve been hearing a lot about soft skills, or people skills, when describing a candidate’s interviewing and hiring process. These are the skills that basically allow you to get along and interact with others in a work and social environment. Your ability to evaluate and hone your people skills should be part of your job prep, just as you ensure your resume is clean and typo-free.
An employee should be able to communicate, listen, share ideas, and interact with people (sometimes difficult people) in a way that demonstrates professionalism at all times. During the interview process, while your resume is showing your credentials, you are inherently demonstrating your soft skills. It takes constructive thought to be the person you want to be in the workplace. It doesn’t just happen by chance — it happens via thoughtful awareness, informed actions, and respectful engagements.
The skills of success, such as being adaptable, being positive, having a willingness to assist, and conveying a strong work ethic, are arguably more important than any degree or credential.
